Philadelphia Phillies (3-4) at New York Mets (4-3)
PHI: David Buchanan
NYM: Matt Harvey
A Note for Tonight:
David Buchanan will get the start today and try to stop the losing streak the Phillies are about to devolve into. David only made it to the 3rd inning on his first outing for the year and will hope to get back to Spring Training form, where he pitched with a 1.29 ERA over six games. The offense was shut out for the second time of the season yesterday, so here’s to getting the runs going again. Freddy Galvis will look to continue his positive contributions, hitting 3 for 3 yesterday and batting .400 for the season.
After vowing to ‘turn it around’, Ryan Howard ended up going 1 for 4 with a lucky single that bounced off the bag. Chase Utley is yet to have a hit in the series and hopes to turn the season around abruptly after batting .091 through the first 7 games.
